Question:

How can I find what other web sites link point to my web site? When I use Google's backlink function ('Backward Links' from the Google Toolbar), I get only 10 sites listed that point to me. I know for fact there are more. I simply want to discover who links to me.

Answer:

I understand that knowing the links pointing to a site helps evaluate how popular or important the site is. This is what PageRank and similar algorithm use.
Right now, Google is not too good with the 'Backward Links' function. You can try Alexa.com. As of now (September 2005), yahoo delivers the best result if you search using the linkdomain: syntax.

By the way, a different approach would be to parse the referrer log file of your web server. It may just take longer.

Here an example for this site (www.delphifaq.com)

- Google Backlinks: 20 links, 10 of them from one single spam site

- Alexa 'Sites Linking in': 17 links, the spam site is not included

- Yahoo (linkdomain:delphifaq.com): 'About 809' results.
